[TRANS]110131 Fukutaro Blogs about Jaejoong's Kindness

After my vacation in Korea, I have completely understood the reason behind why there are so many people who are in love with Jaejoong. We haven’t seen each other for a long time. So we drank until early morning on the first day of the reunion and went home afterwards. We played and wrote some music together, talked awhile, and eventually I became sleepy and fell asleep on the floor.

Not sure how long after, but when I woke up, I realized I had a blanket over me. It is very cold in Korea. I think if I went to bed without a blanket I would definitely catch a cold…

But I wasn’t surprised that he helped put a blanket on me; it was the fact that he was sleeping right beside me. He clearly had his own bed that he could have slept on, but he purposely brought his blankets from the bed and slept with me on the floor…

Even though there was only one blanket, but I feel that his gentleness must be the reason why there are so many people who adore him.

I used to think that such good people wouldn’t exist in this world. But now, from the bottom of my heart I realize that this is someone whom I can trust forever.

It’s someone who can make others feel the warmth.

Please be my friend forever.

I passed on everyone’s well wishes to him.

There will definitely be a time when he’ll smile with everyone once again. You, who radiate such shinning light, are the sun for every one of us!!

Best friend, see you next time.

[TRANS]110130 Alcohol by Jaejoong from JYJ Music Essay


Alcohol—Kim Jaejoong (JYJ Music Essay)

Intoxicated, like dragging a heavy bag
Standing in front of the entrance, pressing in the key code
But somehow, I cannot recall the key code that I have memorized by heart
Why did I drink so much to the point of being drunk?

Don’t know if you guys have ever done this before?
Don’t want to watch TV, don’t want to play the piano, don’t want to read any books
And don’t want to look at the people walking back and forth in that world beyond my window
I want to hide

In the end, I can only lie on the sofa motionlessly
Have no urge to move, only stare blankly at the cactus
As I was staring at the cactus I suddenly realized I was talking to myself, “Am I feeling a little bit lonely?”
The fate of a cactus is that if the heart of his core have been fiddled with, his life would be shortened
The cactus seems to say to me, “you are lonely, just like me”

Lonely, frustrated, depressed
There’s nowhere I can go to let out my feelings
At that time, the only friend I could find, was alcohol

But this thing
I would definitely despise it tomorrow
However, I think I would nonetheless continue to pursue it

[TRANS] 110130 Mnet, TVXQ Is TVXQ And SM Is SM

Cable music channel Mnet Media, who recently made amends with SM Entertainment, is voluntarily taking time out to promote the group ‘TVXQ’ (U-Know Yunho, Choikang Changmin).

‘Tap! TVXQ’ will air on February 2nd and 3rd and will feature footage of 48 hours in the life of TVXQ. The clips will be aired in a guerilla method with no pre-scheduled times.

Mnet stated, “No one knows how many clips there are, how long they are and when they will be aired,” and “That means that people will have to tune into MNet all day long if they don’t want to miss a single clip.” The footage will also show the rehearsal process and behind the scenes moments of the ‘M! Countdown’ episodes that aired on the 20th and 27th.

However, TVXQ did not set aside time to create this program. These clips were created by Mnet following TVXQ around with cameras.

TVXQ appeared on ‘M! Countdown’ on the 20th at the Sangam-dong CJ E&M Center, their first appearance on an Mnet program in two years. This was because SM cut all ties with Mnet after the latter’s ‘Mnet KM Music Festival’ that was held in November, 2008.

The entertainment industry sees TVXQ’s appearance on ‘M! Countdown’ as the restoration of ties between SM and Mnet. However, the two companies are still in an uncomfortable standing with each other. Many criticize that both are doing nothing but trying to benefit from the situation instead of trying to resolve it.

SM and Mnet began to clash with a problem regarding music distribution in 2008. In 2009, SM disallowed its artists from attending the ‘Mnet Asia Music Awards’ because it questioned the impartiality of the judging.
